Ingredients 

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion or shallot
  • 2 English cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup unsalted pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Add the apple cider vinegar and salt to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Once simmering, add in the minced red onion or shallot and remove from the heat. Let the onion steep and cool in the vinegar for 10-15 minutes.
  • In a large serving bowl combine the cucumbers, dill, feta and pistachios.
  • Pour the onion and vinegar mixture over the top of the salad and add in the olive oil and black pepper.
  • Toss everything together until coated then serve.

Notes

  • This salad is best eaten the day it is made. The pistachios will soften the longer they sit in the salad.
  • If you want to add a little sweetness to the salad, add 1/2 teaspoon of honey to the warm vinegar and onion mixture.
